In a response to another tweet today, Kotaku’s Jason Schreier has apparently confirmed the title of the next Call of Duty.
The alleged title of the newest Call of Duty will be Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Later in another tweet, Schreier also called it a “soft reboot”. This info confirms other recent rumors that Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty title this year would return to the Modern Warfare series.
Despite the rumors and details emerging, neither Infinity Ward nor Activision has confirmed anything. But with E3 in a few weeks, it’s possible we could see a game reveal. While this may dampen the surprise it’s probably good news for many COD fans.
While Call of Duty: Ghosts and Infinite Warfare (the last two Infinity Ward COD titles) reviewed well, fans felt differently. Ghosts is considered to be one of the worst recent Call of Duty games. Infinite Warfare ran into trouble with its futuristic setting and abilities. Many fans wanted a more realistic take and longed for a return to the Modern Warfare series.
So despite the confusing title (the first Modern Warfare game was Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare), it looks like Infinity Ward is going back to its roots.
